There’s a price to be paid for “cheap” #food—a price that our kids will have to pay. https://t.co/IMqziTsua7

Consumers are demanding more and more information about what's in our food. But what if food producers also had to tell us how our food is made? For example, did the grower of a product—organic or otherwise—use regenerative farming practices that contributed to soil health? Practices that helped restore the soil’s capacity to retain precious water? And draw down and store carbon? Practices that maybe resulted in a higher price at the checkout counter? But took a lower toll on the environment? The next time someone tells you organic (and beyond organic) food is too expensive, you may want to remind them that our grandparents paid a lot more for their food, as a percentage of income, than we do today. And that there’s a price to be paid for “cheap” food—a price that our kids and grandkids will have to pay, even if we don’t.
